Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today, we are going to be taking a look at a really simple way for quickly turning on and off VoiceOver. Now, for those that might not know, VoiceOver is Apple's screen reading software, and a screen reader gives a person with a visual impairment the ability to totally use their device. And it does this by speaking the items or information that is on our screen. And that is pretty fantastic.
Now, the easiest way to turn on and off VoiceOver is by using Siri. Now, if we're not yet familiar with Siri, well, Apple likes to call Siri our personal assistant. And with Siri we're able to do things like set reminders, or calender events. We're able to perform a web search, place a phone call, or even send a text message.
